Men's Golf Heads To Stanford's U.S. Intercollegiate

            Looking to make a breakthrough in its spring season, the San Jose State University men's golf team returns to action, April 11 in the three-day, 54-hole U.S. Intercollegiate hosted by Stanford University.

            The 20-team tournament takes place at the 6,727-yard par 70 Stanford University Golf Course.

            San Jose State head coach John Kennaday is taking a five-man lineup of sophomores Jay Myers and Matthew Hovan, junior Mark Hubbard and seniors Stephan Stallworth and Rosco Valentine to battle a field that includes seven top-25 ranked teams.

            Arizona State (#12), Oregon (#6), Oregon State (#24), Southern California (#14), UCLA (#4), Washington (#3) and host Stanford (#2) are in the top-25 in the April 7 GolfStat national poll.

            California, Denver, Fresno State, Hawaii, Lamar, Long Beach State, Pepperdine, San Diego State, USF, UC Davis, UC Irvine and Washington State join the Spartans competing for team and individual honors.

            This spring, the Spartans' best finish was 17th out of 22 teams at the Mauna Lani Invitational in Hawaii.

            There is no charge for admission and free parking is available at the golf course.

            Live scoring will be available at www.golfstat.com.

            Following the U.S. Intercollegiate, San Jose State will host the 64th annual Western Intercollegiate at the Pasatiempo Golf Course in Santa Cruz. Twelve teams will test their skills on the par 70 course, Saturday and Sunday, April 17-18.
